Why did you decide to go into business?

To show my kids that anything is possible. I want to show them you can love being a mum and business owner and be good at both.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Juggling kids and business at the same time. When I started the business I had a 2 and 4 year old and was pregnant with my 3rd. It has become easier as they have gotten older.

What are you most proud of?

Growing the business over the last 4 years and having a great team that works well without me. I love that I work around school hours and get to be there for my kids.

Do you have a fave place to spend summer/go to for coffee/ go to to relax/ go to for food?

Yes!! Summer in Port Mac Donnell, my home town is great. The weather is amazing and having fish and chips on the beach is a highlight. Walks along the beach are so relaxing.

What advice would you give other women wanting to start a business?

Give it a go and it doesn’t have to be perfect at the start. Take imperfect action and move forward.
